The Minnesota Fight Night podcast debuted in 2020 with special guest Jamal “Shango” James. Fittingly, as we kick off our fourth season, Minneapolis boxer James (27-2, 12 KOs) is back to talk about his Feb. 25 Showtime-televised fight at The Armory in Minneapolis. James, a former WBA welterweight champion, returns to the ring after a 16-month layoff. His opponent, a 2016 Olympic boxer, is Alberto Palmetta of Argentina. This episode features audio from a Jan. 25 media event at the Circle of Discipline, James’ home gym, and a one-on-two interview with James and his sparring partner, Slink Proper, an up-and-coming pro boxer in his own right. Trainer Sankara Frazier also joins the conversation. Armory boxing publicist Robb Leer does the honors with the opening round of questions. Intro music: “Ali Shuffle,” by the Toler/Townsend Band. Special thanks to Deb Toler.
